Kailyn Kugler Named Golden1 Athlete of the Week

Aug. 25, 2008

Sophomore Kailyn Kugler got the women's soccer team off to a solid start by scoring a goal and adding an assist in a season-opening 4-0 win at Nevada.

Kugler, the 2007 Big West Conference Freshman of the Year, scored UCSB's second goal of the match in the 31st minute as she picked off a pass and beat the Wolfpack keeper one-on-one.

Just prior to halftime, Kugler, a San Clemente native, fed a pass to freshman Alissa Sanchez, who buried a shot to put UCSB up 3-0.

The Gauchos play at No. 2 UCLA Aug. 26 and host No. 21 San Diego Aug. 29.
